If you are looking for a spooky dark watch, take a look at this Zenith Defy Revival Shadow. It’s unmistakably a Defy with its design, which goes back to the first Defy models that were introduced in 1969. And as customers want more variation, they get more variation. Whit multiple colors for the dial, or with models like this.

It has a rather subtle 37-millimeter case which is made from titanium that is micro-blasted. A process that gives the octagonal case and its 14-sided bezel a roughly looking matte appearance. As the dial has a matte black color, it gets you to the dark side of Zenith. Which they have entered before, with the Chronomaster Revival Shadow for example.

The applied rhodium-plated silver-white hands and markers coated with super-luminova radiate perfectly from its dial with a small date-window positioned between 4 and 5 o’clock.

The Zenith Defy Revival Shadow has a ladder-shaped bracelet

Inside the Zenith Defy Revival Shadow is the in-house Elite caliber 670, an automatic movement providing 50 hours of power reserve. To be admired through the transparent case back. Another special thing about the watch is the titanium bracelet, which comes in a ladder shape. That’s something you don’t see very often anymore, but maybe it’s going to be an new trend.
